Buyer

My wife and I were referred to Chris and Sarah by my brother for the purchase of our first home. We could not have been happier with the referral and to have chosen them as our realtors, there are so many great things to say about them! First off, Chris and Sarah were very informative about the home buying process and made everything really easy. Every step of the way they were readily available if we had any questions or concerns about the process. The Roods understood right away what we were looking for in a house and helped guide us into finding the style of house that worked best for what we were wanting. They not only helped us throughout the home buying process but also referred us to our fantastic lender who worked hand-in-hand with them to ensure we had our best foot forward. Since we were looking for a home from out of state and we couldn't always be there in person, being abl…

First off, Chris and Sarah were very informative about the home buying process and made everything really easy. Every step of the way they were readily available if we had any questions or concerns about the process. The Roods understood right away what we were looking for in a house and helped guide us into finding the style of house that worked best for what we were wanting. They not only helped us throughout the home buying process but also referred us to our fantastic lender who worked hand-in-hand with them to ensure we had our best foot forward. Since we were looking for a home from out of state and we couldn't always be there in person, being able to get virtual tours of potential homes in a way that made us feel like we were there in person was a game changer. Chris and Sarah are experts in both their knowledge about real estate and conducting market research in a rapidly changing environment, we trusted them completely to lend their opinion on any home we were looking at, even if we couldn't be there ourselves. In a hot housing market they were able to help guide us into putting together a competitive offer on a home that we ended up getting and absolutely love! While we didn't land the first home we put an offer on, their recommendations about where we stood with other buyers and what the house would likely be going for was incredibly accurate. This set us up nicely to put another competitive offer on the next house which we were able to get and we couldn't be more thrilled. We know that the home buying experience can be daunting, as it was for us initially, but with Chris and Sarah we felt confident that we would find the right house for us. We highly recommend the Roods for anyone in the market for a real estate team that will go above and beyond to get you the home you're looking for. They are truly awesome!

Buyer/Seller

Sarah and Chris are amazing to work with! From selling our condo to purchasing our first home, it was nothing but amazing! They're knowledgeable, flexible to meet our schedules, patient, and they even drove all the way up to Bellingham multiple times from West Seattle to show us all the houses. I would definitely recommend working with the Roods, whether it's selling or buying! Thank you!

Nyle C.

Seller

Sarah and Chris went above and beyond to sell our Condo in West Seattle. Their concierge service got our property ready for market in no time. The staging and pictures were amazing which helped fetch top dollar for the unit. The sale price was the largest the 25 unit building had ever seen. If you are looking to take the stress out of selling your property you should definitely contact The Rood Team.

Buyer/Seller

I absolutely cannot say enough about Team Rood! We had the unique opportunity to work with Chris and Sarah to both buy a home and sell our home, all within a 60 day window. Local knowledge and process expertise should be table stakes for any agent. TEAM ROOD has these in Spades. But where Chris and Sarah shine is in their relationships with their clients. From the get go, Team Rood was top notch - they truly made my wife and I feel like the two most important clients they had. As buyers, Chris and Sarah consoled us when we lost an offer. They were excited for us when a new home came on the market. They were never too busy to answer my (often rudimentary) questions, even in to the late hours of the evening. They communicated effectively and proactively all along the way. Team Rood genuinely cared about us as people. I can vividly remember the 11PM phone call we received from the Ro…

They were excited for us when a new home came on the market. They were never too busy to answer my (often rudimentary) questions, even in to the late hours of the evening. They communicated effectively and proactively all along the way. Team Rood genuinely cared about us as people. I can vividly remember the 11PM phone call we received from the Roods upon learning that we were the winning offer on our beautiful home in Snoqulamie Ridge. Couldn't be happier with the home we got, and the process it took to get it! As sellers, I cannot even describe the phenomenal experience provided by Chris and Sarah. You talk about "going the extra mile", that is exactly what the Roods did for us. From the guidance on market timing, pricing, and preparation, they were masterful. I can say that it was a zero-stress experience from beginning to end. For those who are curious, we ended up with multiple offers, and closed before 30 days, well over list price. As we bought our home, my wife and I commented to each other that it was bittersweet - it was GREAT that we got the home we wanted! but it was sad that our weekend tours with Chris were over. As we sold our home, the feeling of being finally DONE with it all was a huge relief. But it also reminded us how much we would miss working with the Roods! We will fondly remember Sarah's sarcasm and Chris's subtle humor! Highest recommendation for these two. Do yourselves a favor and hire them. You can thank this review later! In all seriousness, best of luck to you all as you navigate this often stressful, but always exciting market.

Sarah and Chris were amazing to work with. They were recommended to me by a friend who worked with them to buy and sell their house. They’re very personable and easy to talk to. They are knowledgeable of the Seattle neighborhoods and knew exactly what I was looking for in a home when sending me recommendations. They were able to help me understand what to look for in a place, what to watch out for, and I always felt they had my back. I highly recommend them and will certainly be reaching out if I’m ever in the market again!

Whether you're buying or selling, Chris and Sarah are an amazing team. Attentive, helpful, and absolutely reliable. Those can be confusing and stressful processes, and I've worked with them doing both! They explained every step carefully, answered any and all questions, and were very easy to reach any time I had any concerns. I worked with Sarah in buying a house, and she loved hearing what a client looks for in particular, and zeroed in very quickly on the kind of houses we wanted to see but didn't do any pushback if we wanted to just check through something a little different from the norm. Their contacts for things like inspections are impeccable, thorough, honest, and having to not worry about finding an inspector is very helpful. She gave great advice on best practices for offers and how things are processed and helped get a truly gorgeous home. In selling, she and Chris were at the…

She gave great advice on best practices for offers and how things are processed and helped get a truly gorgeous home. In selling, she and Chris were at the property often before the team to stage it even arrived, doing what they could to make the place as lovely as possible, and asking if any alterations like painting rooms would be okay, as well as why they made those suggestions. The staging, 3D walkthrough, and photography teams that they use are excellent! They really know how to feature the best features of a place. My house had an extensive garden but was showing in the winter, so they asked me for some photos of it in full summer bloom so they could feature those as well. I know I'm a worrywart and a high maintenance buyer and seller, but they always welcomed my questions and always treated them with respect and care. For their professionalism, care, capability, and knowledge, you can't do better than the Roods!

Erik, Buyer

Chris walked us through the process from start to finish and was available any time we needed anything. It was our first time buying a home so we had some real concerns about going through with it. Chris never made us feel pressured and his knowledge really helped us in making a decision we are still happy about to this day. Would highly recommend Chris and will definitely use him again if we move out of this house in the future.

Gary C.

100% positive. I would highly recommend it. Sarah was knowledgeable and resourceful and made the home selling process so easy. I cannot believe how much she did with all the coordination, staging, photos, etc. She was also able to procure contractors for any work I need to be done at the house for a competitive price. She basically does it all and really takes the stress out of the process. Cannot thank her enough.

Megan

Chris and Sarah made the stressful process of selling a house as easy as possible. They listened to our concerns, gave great suggestions, and had above par communication. We were able to be under contract within a few days for above our asking price with multiple offers. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to sell a house in the Seattle area. Thanks Rood Team!

Kali M.

Chris and Sarah are the best! They know the Greater Seattle market so well. They’ve been in the business long enough that I trust their judgment explicitly. They are professional and always on top of it. Knowledge, expertise, and amazing customer service. What more can I say?
